How to Cook Beets

Homegrown beets usually show up at our farmer's markets mid-summer.

Beets are a simple and easy vegetable to fix.

So are beet leaves.

To cook beets, cut off the top leaves at the base of the stem and clean off roots.

Boil until soft to a fork.

Steam leaves until they are also tender. Serve with a little sprinkling of lemon juice and real mayo.

How about that, two vegetable dishes from one vegetable and no recipes required!
